A very close family member died a year ago. I guess in a way to honor her memory, I'll put this here and see if anyone else does this. She is the 1 who taught me to be thankful for things that maybe small to some. We would take turns when 1 of us was going through something and say : attitude of gratitude which meant that whomever called it got to go 1st. It was an advantage to go first because you were not allowed to repeat. Also, instead of 3, we did 10. Here are a few of mine: 1. I am thankful for God, family and friends who help me through this life. 2. I am thankful for decent health. 3. I am thankful to have an income/ lifestyle that allows me to pretty much never say no to something/someone important to me. 4. This 1 may sound like nothing to some, but I am thankful to climb into a warm bed every night. It is the best physical feeling to be warm. 5. I am thankful to the person who told me what "squirrel" meant after yrs of my kids and a friend jokingly saying it to me. It is true about me too, and it is funny to me. Which is leading me to a second question.... Something I have thought about a lot lately for some reason. It is about "personal physical comfort". What things do you buy with personal comfort in mind? In my life, I seldom thought about personal comfort until recently. ( Other than when sitting in the back of an airplane for many hours on end. Then it was more about discomfort.) I kind of got spoiled because I'd get upgrades w/miles almost every yr. I never bought a car/ truck thinking about personal comfort. It never dawned on me to buy a rig that was comfortable as opposed to practical. You need 4/ all wheel drive here. I have a friend who would never buy a rig that was not super comfy. My car was in the shop last wk and I have another car available to me when needed. I got into it and smacked my head on it because of the way I kind of bounce inside. I did the same thing on the way out of it the 1st time pretty hard. Then I spent a week of caution when getting in and out. I am actually not super tall either 5'4''. It is a Honda and after getting my own rig back, I am truly thankful that it was made for someone taller, and I don't have to worry about hitting my head! Until recently, I had never seen a need to buy new blankets for the last 18 yrs. It has nothing to do with $, but more about I didn't need anymore. So I got some new ones and can't believe how soft new blankets are! The feeling of them on your skin at night is so amazing to me. I'm super nonmaterialistic, but I am thinking of going out and getting a new bed that is super comfy and 1 of those Lazy Boy chairs. Any other suggestions for comfort that don't take up a lot of space?
